The Gentlemen's Run was an event sponsored by the Gentlemen's Report, a new lifestyle magazine for men. Anyone who could bicycle could take part in it.....provided they were dressed up for it! Well, not actually having bicycles did not deter the two of us from participating. We simply borrowed one each from the Züri Velos and then we dandied up a little bit (yes, there were some women despite it being a Gentlemen's event!) and off we pedaled! It was truly a 'vintage' experience!
The collection of bicyclists could not have been more colourful! There were all age groups, different backgrounds, countries, and of course all sorts of of bicycle enthusiasts. There were some guys who had actually made their own bicycles!
We started the Run from the Landesmuseum and made two pitstops for some refreshments and then ended up at the Hyatt to a rousing applause. And a fine young gentleman who had made his own bicycle won the award for being the best dressed! Am sure his bicycle helped him win it too!
